Date 2012-04-12 Availability unrestricted AbstractDispositional Employability and Career Success are constructs that when brought together leads to a multitude of questions regarding their meaning. This study attempted to determine whether there is a significant relationship between the two constructs of dispositional employability and career success. The study furthermore focused on expanding on the literature by elaborating on the sample group. This was done by determining whether or not there is a difference between the groups with regards to their Dispositional Employability and Career Success based on their individual characteristics. A quantitative research approach was followed to obtain the research objectives of this study. The Dispositional Employability Measure and Career Success Orientation Measure were administered among a purposive convenience sample of HRM Practitioners in South Africa (N=155). The results of the research showed that there is a significant relationship between Dispositional Employability and Career Success with a low effect. Furthermore significant differences exist between groups with regards to both Dispositional Employability on the ground of number of years in their current organisation and Career Success on level of education, age, race and job level. The study thus contributes to the limited literature on both constructs. In addition, the results of the study make important theoretical, methodological and practical contributions. Recommendations for future research are made.
